Louise Self Barking Mad Home Boarding Chesterfield Dog Sitting


We provide the very best dog home boarding near you in the Chesterfield, South Sheffield and Peak District areas. Dogs deserve a holiday too!

“I am committed to providing a great service for yourselves and your dog(s), so you can enjoy peace of mind while you are away.”

About Me

My name is Louise Self. I am proud to operate the Barking Mad dog boarding service in Chesterfield. Also offering dog boarding in South Sheffield, Alfreton and South Peak areas.

Dog Home Boarding in Chesterfield

We ensure your dog receives loving one to one care as we meet you in person every dog holiday. I understand the connection that people have with their dogs and how putting them into an environment which is alien to the dog can be difficult for both the dog and the owner. It can put you off booking holidays without your dogs.

My mission is to ensure that your dog is matched with a suitable host family. That they have a great time and as a result will see your break as their own holiday – everyone’s a winner!

My Background

Following 14 years working in Local Government I decided it was time for a career change. At this point I had been a Barking Mad host for 4 years and absolutely loved it. As a result there was no doubt in my mind as to what I wanted to do so here I am!

I have had two Border Collies in the past. With my second one I competed in agility and flyball competitions with a large degree of success.  I had gap during which I hosted for Barking Mad to help to fill the void that not owning a dog. It gave me experience with all sorts of breeds and types of dogs that I would not otherwise have experienced.

Also I have owned a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was a rescue dog. Hosted 2 large dogs (from the same family) at a time, which is something I never thought I would do but it has been a positive experience.  I now own and train my Springer Spaniel, Bailey and do both agility and gun dog training.  I love all breeds of dog. So am committed to providing the best service possible for your dog while you are away. Dog home boarding in Chesterfield is a great alternative to kennel. Our host families take their pet sitting duties very seriously and ensure your dog has a great time while you’re away.
